Cape Town – Michael B. Jordan is reportedly in talks to play Superman.

According to Variety, the Black Panther actor met with DC Comics earlier this year to talk about how he would play the titular character.

In January he signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros for his production company Outlier Society.

The publication further reports that the 32-year-old isn't ready to commit just yet as his schedule is fully packed, he is working on other film and TV projects.

Film insiders speculate that a new Superman film will most likely only be released in 2023.

In 2018 The Hollywood Reporter reported that after appearing in three Superman films Henry Cavill would be hanging up the cape.

According to the publication, negotiations broke down between the star's reps and the studio.
